Series F1 Electromagnetic Separators
S.G. Frantz Series F1 Electromagnetic Separators have been the workhorses of the magnetic separation industry for over 65 years. This is due, in part, to the fact that the unit has no moving parts. With proper maintenance, our F1 Electromagnetic Separators have been known to last 50 years or more.
The background field induces a field several times more intense in the collecting elements, with a high-field energy gradient H(dH/dX) at the collecting edges of a standard matrix element fabricated of steel ribbon .25″ in width and 0.02″ thick calculated as 7.2 x 1011 gauss2/cm (assuming that the field induced in the steel near the edge is about 8,500 gauss, as measurements indicate).
Series F1 Electromagnetic Separators for Wet Materials
The S.G. Frantz F1 Electromagnetic Separators for wet materials utilize a magnetic background field of approximately 1,000 gauss to economically and efficiently process and separate ferromagnetic particles under many processing conditions. The standard model can handle product temperatures up to 176°F (80°C), while special thermal insulated and water-cooled units can handle product temperatures up to 400°F (205°C). They are available in the following three designs with individual models configured to meet customer needs.
Series F1 Electromagnetic Separators for Dry Materials
S.G. Frantz F1 Electromagnetic Separators for Dry Materials utilize either a magnetic background field of approximately 500 gauss (for air-cooled models) or approximately 700 gauss (for water-cooled models). The standard model can handle product temperatures up to 150°F (66°C), while special thermal-insulated and water-cooled units can handle product temperatures up to 400°F (205°C). They are available in the following two designs (with individual models configured to meet customer needs).
Dry Material Grid Models
S.G. Frantz offers two styles of Series F1 Electromagnetic Separators with Vane/Wet-type grids. These include suspended models and floor models for various plant applications.
Both models hang on four aluminum or stainless steel rods with elastomer-bushed connections at both ends to permit lateral motion under vibration. The difference is, the suspended model is attached to the customer’s supplied structure, while the floor models are mounted on a floor stand and frame which can be moved to any location in the plant. (NOTE: Standard floor models have a top ring with a feed hopper attached, while standard suspended models have a top ring with a hub attached to permit use in a closed system.)
All models have an eccentric weight vibrator attached to the casing. Vibration can be adjusted to impart the motion required to aid passage of the material. Hubs are provided for attachment of a flexible sleeve at the bottom.
